An inspirational new building at the heart of the Cardiff University campus developed alongside, and in partnership with its students Union. The new Centre for Student Life building will deliver a world leading holistic student experience providing for every facet of student life.

The Centre for Student Life is part of a major investment in the student experience and part of the biggest campus upgrade in a generation at Cardiff University, in response to requests from students for enhanced services and improved spaces for learning and studying.

The new building will create a central hub for student support services as well as offering modern, flexible social learning spaces and a technology-rich 550-seat lecture theatre.

Student services will be structured around:

  • Futures: careers, employability and global opportunities
  • Wellbeing: mental health and counselling
  • Student life: money, international student support, disability support, student administration
  • Advice bar: students can raise their query either physically within the centre or online 24/7

The co-location of the Centre and the Students’ Union will enable easy access of services, which will benefit students enormously. 

Construction work is due to start in 2017 and the Centre is due to be completed for the 2019/20 academic year.
